Verdel Instruments Ltd.

Verdel Instruments Ltd - a spin-out company of the University of Warwick UK – has developed new disruptive two-dimensional mass spectrometry (2DMS) technology and raised seed investment of over £230,000 from Longwall Ventures and Innovate UK. Designed by world-leading researchers, this is the first benchtop instrument with 2DMS capability. It quickly and efficiently delivers high quality structural analysis and sequencing of every component in a complex mixture at the same time. The new technique from Verdel Instruments Ltd makes the advanced 2DMS process accessible outside academia for the first time. How the new technique works Verdel’s disruptive 2DMS technology employs electric pulses to manipulate ions in a linear ion trap before fragmentation to enable parallel acquisition of mass spectra, which operates in combination with UV laser-based fragmentation and a fast mass analyser such as a time-of-flight. This data independent analysis (DIA) technique offers far better specificity, sensitivity, and speed in sample analysis than current techniques in routine use. Currently, complex samples run on liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry instruments used in the pharmaceutical industry require long run times, sometimes in the region of 90 minutes. If anomalies are found in the data, the run can be extended by an additional 180 minutes. With 2DMS, only a single 20-minute analysis is required. The new technique from Verdel Instruments Ltd enables researchers to analyse multiple complex samples in one go, with all the data produced in parallel – something that has previously been impossible. The revolutionary technology makes pharmaceutical research and food safety testing more accurate, at least ten times quicker than at present, and allows higher throughput analyses. It will be particularly advantageous for sample types which are water insoluble and pressure sensitive. *
